Berton Vineyards Reserve Barossa Shiraz 2019

This is the Berton Vineyards Barossa Shiraz sibling of Berton Vineyard's Coonawarra Reserve Cabernet and, just like its brother, is a prime example of how good affordable Australian wines can be. This has to be one of the best value for money red wines available anywhere!

This is a big, big wine - deepest darkest red, with a rich, full-bodied palate of ripe blackcurrant, bramble and black cherry, with hints of pepper and a cosy mocha note. This is a great example of Barossa Valley Shiraz at an affordable price, combining the classic Aussie boldness with a fresher, more modern winemaking style. Drink it with a hearty root vegetable stew, or a vegetarian lasagne.

After fermentation, the wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 16 months, lending it a hint of toasty spice and vanilla. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.

Berton Vineyards is a modern, forward-looking producer, embracing the technology and possibilities of vegan winemaking.

The Barossa Reserve Shiraz from Bob Berton is one of Berton Vineyards flagship wines. This is a rich, full-bodied wine with ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit and hints of coffee and spice. It's a big wine and will pair well with chargrilled steak, roast meats or game yet for those who love full-bodied red it can be delightful once decanted as a drink on its own.

Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 75 acres of land at 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills in a sub-region of Eden Valley in South Australia. The superb Reserve Shiraz and Reserve Chardonnay wines are still sourced from this plot. In 2007 Bob purchased the Yenda winery in the heart of the Riverina. This state of the art facility has the capacity to process 10,000 tonnes and allows Berton Vineyards to produce value for money wines that sit alongside his premium single-vineyard offerings.

Vinification
The wine was pressed off into stainless steel tank where it completed its malolactic fermentation in the late autumn. The wine was then racked off onto both French and American oak resulting in a spicey sweet fruit shiraz.

Tasting Note

This Reserve Shiraz is deep red in colour with a very youthful, vibrant hue. The aromas are powerful and complex with a wealth of fruit including ripe black cherries and blackberries with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The rich, full-bodied palate is brimming with mulberry, blackberry and vanilla notes, which are underpinned by a fine tannin structure.

Everyday Serving Suggestion

Perfect with rich red meat dishes, such as shepherd's pie or roast veal.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
